I enjoy Nalini Singh’s writing and world’s she creates. I have to say I’m not falling in love with the Guild Hunter series like I did with her Psy-Changeling. Not sure why!! I am still very much enjoying theis series, but it’s not as die hard must read and own the books as I am with the Psy-Changeling.

Archangel’s Legion is book six in the Guild Hunter series. It returns us to our main and first couple Elena and Raphael. We get to see how their relationship is developing and the changes that are happening physically, emotionally, and in the world.

Elena is young, very young for an Angel and the first that the Angels know of that is a Made Angel. She is Consort to Raphael and a Guild Hunter. We go a little deeper into her psyche and the trauma that her father Jeffery instilled in her and get see how this affects her. We also see her taking on more responsibility - that many did not think or feel she would take on yet. She learns new things about being a Consort and starts to realizing that her life is just as dangers, if not more now, then it every was. Last she is coming to understand her place next to Raphael and in the world. Their is still much more for both of them to learn.

As for Raphael he undergoes very few changes in this installment.

We get to revisit with Raphael’s Seven and learn more about them, especially Aodhan. I really liked the inside look into Aodhan and can’t wait for his story. Archangel’s Legion had a nice mix of old and new characters. Their is lots of action, adventure, new alliances made, and a war coming. Things are changing and some big surprises are introduced to the reader, especially at the end.

The only thing that I didn’t care for was all the sex. I don’t mind reading about sex in romance books, but I felt it was too much. Almost every chapter had Elena and Raphael getting it on or ending with them in bed.

Archangel’s Legion was a satisfying read. It tackles Elena and Raphael’s greatest fears and shows how the characters are developing. The pace is quick, the action is relentless, and it prepares us for change in the world.

Rated: 3.5 Stars

Nalini Singh rarely disappoints, and she didn't here. A solid chapter in this series. It was fun getting back to Ellie and Raphael, as well as seeing favorites from other stories.

listened to audio narrated by Justine Eyre. Another awesome read by Nalini, epic battle between Archangels and Raphael and Elena work to manage the influx of new powers and create alliances and bonds with their people as well as allies. New plagues, biological warfare angelic style.

*Contains Spoilers*

Archangel's Legion is book six in the Guild Hunter series and I am so happy that I have returned to this series and after reading this book I wanted to read book one again, because I love me some Raphael and Elena. They are one of my favorite pairings and boy these do were EPIC in this novel and Nalini Singh has really outdone herself in this book. Now, this review will probably contain spoilers, so readers beware.

Archangel's Legion begins with Raphael and Elena, going about their duties in their lives and to their territory. Elena is still trying to face up to her past especially that past with her mother's death and her father's abuse over the years of her childhood. She is still having nightmares but they are becoming less the more time she has spent with Raphael. But there is a change coming for both of them. There is a Archangel who is building a army of death soldiers but she is the most powerful of them all and Raphael isn't even sure he can kill her with all of his power. With Elena's influence, Raphael is starting to see the power and good thinking in building allies and friendships with other powerful Archangel's.

“Raphael, in case you're getting ideas - I won't be this civilized if you decide you need a concubine. In fact, it's a good bet I'll turn homicidal.
He didn't look up from his conversation with Astaad as he said, A pity, in that cool "Archangel" tone of his. I will now have to ask the pilot to empty the hold of my chosen females.
We're going to have to talk about this new sense of humor of yours.”

There is a change that we see from the first couple of books in Raphael and Elena to this book. I love seeing how powerful they are together both as leaders and as a couple working out kinks in their relationship. They are living in their HEA, but we see that life isn't full of roses and daisies either, they have many conflicts to overcome.

The situation starts to escalate when there are falling birds in the sky and including many angels falling from the sky and many being brutally injured and a handful being killed from this phenomenon. Raphael has no clue who is behind it all, but there is a new power rising in him that he doesn't truly understand yet, and there is a facial mark that is beginning to form and it isn't worrying Raphael too much but its terrifying Elena. Now Elena is having to face some real fears because of what is happening around them and she doesn't think she could survive losing Raphael, she has lost so much and what I really liked in this book is the vulnerability that we see in Elena. She can kick ass, of course, she is a Guild Hunter but she does have vulnerabilities and I really love seeing her flaws and seeing her trying to overcome them and becoming a better person as a whole. But when there is a sickness killed vampires, Elena goes on the hunt to find out what or who is behind it all and before Raphael and Elena know it, a new power is coming into Raphael and war is coming onto their doorstep, a war that they might not be able to win....one that could destroy Raphael and Elena.

“The power, it seduced, whispering to me to weave it into my own cells." A glance over his shoulder. "Before you, I would've no doubt accepted it and it would've destroyed me from the inside out."
"Before you," she whispered, "I was shut up inside my heart, protecting it from harm, and never knowing the glory I missed." She linked her hand in his. "You and I, we're a unit. I dare any evil on this earth to tear us apart.”

THIS BOOK!!! I can't even describe in words how much I adored this book and its one of my favorites of the series. These books just get better with each installment and after reading this book I remembered how much I truly adore Raphael and Elena. They are so epic together and it's in this book that you realize why they are such a favorite couple among so many readers. I love how strong they are together,

Eternity would mean nothing without you. For no power on this earth would I trade my Elena

This book I was able to listen to and boy Justine Eyre does such a good job with these books, she really displays Singh's voice so well and I love how she portrays these stories. I would like to say that I didn't want to put this book down, it was SO SO delicious. We have some fun sexy times between Raphael and Elena and they definitely still get creative and hot in the bedroom. There is a built up of plot twists in this book and boy the intensity and suspense in this book was SO fantastic. Definitely beats some romantic suspense novels I have because it's a roller coaster of action and intrigue and loved seeing one of my favorite couples in action once again.

Overall I found Archangel's Legion to be an intense whirlwhind of action, drama, world shattering romance and a story to soak into and never want to let go of!! STUNNING! ( )
